hi if found and a bottle of crown royal from 1975. all of the marking indicate that they were bought in canada. i wanted to no if it is worth anything?

Answer
HI Richard

Distilled spirits like this are so high in alcohol that they don't change much, for better or for worse, over time in the bottle. The good news is that your bottle is fine to drink.  The bad news is that it won't have appreciated in value the way some fine wines do.  This one is worth about what a current bottling is worth--maybe $40 or so.

Sorry that I can't give you more exciting news
